    I'm still finding it hard to play DOS-1. I don't dislike it. I just can't get drawn in, and I hate the stupid "puzzles". I don't want to move a vase every 20 feet, and so far that is what DOS 1 feels like.

    How much better is DOS2?
  • Gear Dependency Vs. Player Skill (Poll)

    There has to be progression, say in MMO's without gear progression, character levels and focusing just in your skill at something, then you have a big longevity problem to attend to.

    The mix of 50/50 gear and skill is what cuts the deal, you gear up, you upgrade, from the lowest to the highest tiers and when you reach the end-game, it's when it depends mostly on your skill.
    Disagree. DAoC in its prime had no gear progression. Levels were just something we had to endure, because at the time that is what MMOs were. Asheron's Call was another. No one even attempted to clone either of those games. WoW choose gear progression, and no other game has tried to break that mold. Perhaps, its not surprising we've been stuck for 13 years now.

    Another fun game that didn't have too much of a gear progression was DDO. But then they became popular and forced gear progression on the players. DDO isn't so popular, anymore.

    If gear-progression games didn't feel like second jobs, I would happily play them. But when I did play those types of games, it was not fun, and the community was toxic. 

    PvP games with gear progression will never be as popular as games that depend on the player. I don't see why we don't have a MMO that took DAoC's spot.
  • Why people now hate early access:

    Not sure what do you mean by people. Ashes of Creation launched recently and broke many records. Conan Exiles had a massive success on their EA launch. Some lips say hate, but overall statistics say love. 
    Ashes of Creation launched EA? Are you thinking of Citadel? If so, that has completely tanked. It dropped to a mixed review rating extremely quickly, and right now its at the bottom of  page 4 of the top selling survival games. That's bad. I mean there is some total garbage ahead of it.

    Conan Exiles has mixed reviews on steam. Any game on steam with a mixed review rating is utter garbage to the vast majority of people.

    Plenty of EA games with positive reviews, but these two aren't it.

    Wow.... I thought this looked cool until I read the comments. What is wrong with devs nowadays.

    I don't get the hate against kickstarter. I do not pledge to anything on Kickstarter. Its my choice. If I did, I know I probably am throwing away my money. But that's OK. Because I routinely throw away $70 minimum a week on booze, $50 dollars weekly on delivery pizza, $12 a week on energy drinks, $12 a week on Taco Bell. And you silly people are crying over a one time donation of $20-$100. Perspective people, perspective.
